For decades, utility companies across the country have banded together when disasters strike to get power back on for their customers. Late last month during Hurricane Ian, AEP Ohio sent nearly 600 employees and contractors—including line personnel, tree crews, damage assessors and crew supervisors—from throughout the state to support power restoration in Florida, North Carolina and Georgia.

  5. As a past employee of Columbus Southern Power/AEP I am proud to know AEP lent a helping hand to those in need during hurricane Ian. I worked many storms in the Athens/Gallipolis office and felt proud knowing the power was back on through the efforts of our office and line crew staff. Great work!
